(TB) 'Music Maker'

1963, Waters

'Music Maker' ( Donald G. Waters, R. 1961). Sdlg. GB-59. TB, 36" (91 cm), Midseason bloom. Color Class-B1M, Sky blue self, light beard. 'Muted Music' X 'Regina Maria'. Schreiners 1963.

MUSIC MAKER (Waters '63) was another disappointment last year; but it, too, did its advance billing justice this year. Plantings in the Luihn and Terrell gardens showed this iris to be another large, ruffled, more of a medium blue this time, but with a personality of its own. It may be a bit large for its height. [Joseph Ghio, “The 1965 Iris Season in Review,” Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 179 (October 1965): 81.]

MUSIC MAKER (Don Waters '63) We saw this superb blue for the first time this year. It is exquisite. The flowers are perfectly formed, strongly substanced, and perfectly smooth and clear light blue in color with no white blaze at the beard tip. A prolific bloomer and appears to be an excellent performer. A must-have for us. [Ralph and Helen Lewis, “Iris from the Carolinas to Iowa and Ohio,” Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 179 (October 1965): 88.]
